Aside from making sure they're both in tiptop shape, the siblings are also putting more effort into the question and answer portion, which can guarantee them of a higher percentage of points, thereby assuring them of a better chance at bagging the title.

The 26-year-old flight attendant told PEP, "Q&A portion is the most critical part of the pageant and even though sometimes you really know what to say or answer, you're not able to deliver it properly because you are nervous.

"But as long as you're confident about yourself and you are aware of the people around you, everything will go smooth."

If Kimberly wins any of the crowns, she said her campaigns and charity projects would focus on health especially for women.

She told PEP, "Since I am a nurse by profession, health is my priority.

"I want to raise the awareness of people especially women regarding cervical cancer since the incident of it is very high in our country.
